I promised last week to give you a little look behind the scenes at somewhere you never see on-air on QVC – it’s what we call the prep kitchen, and it’s where all the food is stored and prepared for the many food and kitchen shows we have here.
I’m planning to do more of these behind the scenes videos – the next one will be giving you a bit of a presenter’s eye view of a show – so do let me know if there’s anything you’d really like to see. I can’t promise I can meet all requests, but I’ll see what I can do! So here we go – come into our kitchen!

In other news, I’m about to start training for the MoonWalk – for those not familiar with it, it’s a power walking marathon which takes place in London in May, in aid of breast cancer causes. You do it through the night (hence the name!), wearing a decorated bra (yes, men too!) and around 17,000 people take part. A group of us from QVC have registered, including several presenters (myself, Debbie Flint, Ali Keenan and Kathy Tayler).
Some of us are doing a half marathon and some doing the full, and I have (maybe foolishly!) decided to do the full marathon. I’m reasonably fit and did 10 miles for Breast Cancer Care last year without any training at all, but this is very different – to sustain a power walk of at least four miles an hour for 26.2 miles is going to be a little tougher! So here we go.
Fortunately, I’ve been able to get back into exercising again since getting out of my plaster cast, although my wrist is still very stiff and painful and I’m still wearing a splint when out and about. And I’m not the only one who’s been “plastered” – I did a show with the lovely fashion stylist Glen Campbell last week and was shocked to see him hobbling around on crutches, after breaking his ankle while out running. We made a right pair during our fashion hour – him swaying around on his one good leg and me dropping things with my dodgy arm! I wish him speedy healing – and he still managed to look as dapper as always, despite his rather unattractive left foot! (click on the pic to enlarge)
That’s it for this week – do get in touch either on Twitter (I’m @jackiekabler) or by leaving a comment under this blog.
Lots of love,
